Rick Berens Sets National Age Group Mark in 100 Fly -- March 15, 2003
CHARLOTTE, N.C. Marach 14. MECKLENBURG Aquatic Club's Rick Berens broke the National Age Group (NAG) record in the 100 yard butterfly for boys 13-14 tonight at the Senior Sectional meet in Mecklenburg.
Berens clocked 49.41 seconds for the 100 fly, bettering the mark of 49.44 set by Kyle Bubolz three years ago.
Tonight Rick has his sights set on MIchael Phelps' 200 yard fly record of 1:49.97. Thus far this year, Rick
has been 1:51 low unshaved and unrested. "The 100 was sort of a surprise," said Parrt Waldron an Assistant Senior Coach at MAC. "The 200 is really his forte."
Rick is coached by Morgan Bailey.
